Rainbow Abalone Shell (Paua Haliotis Iris)


The Haliotis Iris shell has beautiful colors and is not called Rainbow Abalone for nothing. The color is predominantly blue and green and that variant of mother of pearl is called paua by the Maori, the original population of New Zealand. The New Zealand paua have the most beautiful color in the world and are used for burning loose white sage and smudges. Smudging is an ancient Native American practice, in which bundles of herbs and / or fragrant woods, such as white sage and palo santo, are tied together in the abalone shell. This as part of a ritual ceremony or to energetically clean the house and other spaces. The natural holes in the shell provide air supply.
